Hi,

Does mod_bakchand knows when a web server is not responding ?

I want to build a web server (2 machines) with load balance, but what if =
one of
then go down (not the machine, the httpd service) ? The live machine =
will know
(will recalculate the cost to each one in "real time") that the other =
one has died ?

Thank you,

Eduardo.

Yes. mod_backhand knows when any of the machines are unavailable.

What kind of benefit are you looking for? The most obvious benefit would be
the redundancy on your web services. There are definate benefits to using
mod_backhand for LAMP setups. Not sure how your mysql is setup so I can't
comment any further.

Hi,

Basicly I'm looking for redundancy on my Web Server (an image server, that
is
not using Mysql, PHP and CGI).

I've already tried RedHat Piranha with no success using two servers
and know I'm testing the balance (do the loadbalance and failover) and
considering to use mod_backhand.

Thank you,

Eduardo.

With static image servers there is rarely a need to "load balance". A single
Apache server can server upward of 100Mbs if tuned well. There is definitely
an issue of high-availability. As you said yourself, "I'm looking for
redundancy".

Use wackamaole: http://www.backhand.org/wackamole/

We have used it for the exact same purpose with great success.
